Named after Simon Antonius Rutte who founded the distillery, where this jenever is still made based upon his original recipe, in 1872. Old Simon comprises a generous two-fifths malt wine with three-fifths grain alcohol infused and re-distilled with juniper berries and 13 other botanicals.
Although the complete list of 13 botanicals is a closely guarded secret, it is known that these include: coriander, angelica, mace, fresh berries, celery, toasted hazelnuts and roasted walnuts - the two nuts greatly influence the flavour of this genever.

Avaliação e degustação


Experimentado em 14/03/2016

Aparência:

(sample batch 01 bottled 2015) Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Freshly baked brown bread, brazil nuts, pine, overripe banana and baked apple with faint black pepper and cinnamon.

Sabor:

Faintly sweet with a soft mouthfeel. Juniper, brown bread, Ryvita crispbread, brazil nuts, pine, dried (chewy rather than crispy) apple and honey with faint cracked black pepper spice, rosemary and cinnamon.

Aftertaste:

Baked brown bread and pine with very light but invigorating cracked black pepper spice. Hints of white cacao.

No geral:

Delightfully soft and bready with nutty angelica root, pine needle freshness and underlying herbal complexity.
